T Rose Bridal Show

This post has been a long time in the making but I finally have pictures from the T Rose Bridal Show.  I was asked to provide flower bouquets for the fashion show as well as a European  Flower Hat to be worn at the finale!  I was a little nervous, but am SO pleased with how everything turned out!

This gorgeous yellow and green bouquet is made of green hydrangea, green roses, yellow craspedia, yellow freesia, and green cymbidium orchids.

This pink and purple bouquet is made of hot pink roses, white hydrangea, pink astilbe, and purple calla lilies, and accented with rhinestone pins.  I love the contrast between the hard rhinestones, and the soft textures of all the flowers!

Tausha was so gorgeous in this dress....Her purple and green bouquet is made of purple stock, white hydrangea, purple lisianthus, and green cymbidium orchids.

This classic all white bouquet is made of white hydrangea, white spray roses, white freesia, and white Polar star roses.

This hat is my pride and joy.  It was created for the finale of the fashion show and made of white spider mums, gorgeous light blue cornflowers, white dendrobium orchids, and accented with rhinestone pins.  Tausha wore this hat SO well and looked as regal as a queen in this one-of-a-kind hat!

One of my favorite parts of the show was networking with other wedding vendors in the area and I met some really amazing people! Chantel, of Sun*Kissed Designs, creates beautiful custom wedding gowns. Tamika Josephs-Smith, of Diamond Event Services, does full-service event planning.  Tenisha, of Peggy Jay, creates the most amazing beaded jewelry AND custom crystal shoes!  And Kathleen Hertel, of Kathleen Hertel Photography, takes wonderful engagement and wedding photos.  She's also responsible for all of the pictures above!  If you'd like to visit any of their websites, they are listed in the My Favorites tab at the top of this site!

Chantel is the third model from the right and responsible for hand-making each of these custom wedding gowns!! She's amazingly talented and I hope to work with her again!

Lauren's Wedding at Ostertag Vistas

This gorgeous wedding took place at Ostertag Vistas, a beautiful, rustic venue out in Frederick, MD.  Lauren asked me for green and white bouquets, and she wanted each one to be a little bit different!  So, here's what I came up with!
 These beautiful bouquets have white and green hydrangeas, white peonies, green and white cymbidium orchids, white and green roses, white and green hypericum berries, green spider mums, and were decorated with a collar of dusty miller.

 The bride's gorgeous bouquet was made from a white hydrangea, white peonies, white freesia, white Polar Star roses, white cymbidium orchids, green hypericum berries, and a collar of Dusty Miller.  I love this shot of Lauren giving her mom a hug before her wedding!
 This beautiful flower girl carried an all-green bouquet of hydrangea, hypericum berries, and roses.

The boutonnieres and corsages were made from green and white orchids, with accents of hypericum berries or green button mums....and not a one looked like the next!

Lauren's wedding was truly unique and I was happy to be a part of it!  Christine from Christine Varney Events did a beautiful job coordinating the wedding and David of David Hartcorn Photography was kind enough to share the above photos with me.
